Aaron Hernandez cousin ordered held on $15,000 bail

FALL RIVER — A cousin of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez got rid of a cellphone tied to a murder that the athlete is accused of committing, and she also discussed helping one of his associates flee to Puerto Rico, a prosecutor said Thursday.

William McCauley, a Bristol prosecutor, leveled the allegations against Tanya Singleton, 37, when he argued during a Superior Court hearing that she should be held on $100,000 bail on conspiracy and contempt charges stemming from the June 17 slaying.
